Eureka Moments: Professor Andrew Balmford

Andrew Balmford's moment of discovery, which he shared with Professor Rhys Green, was the realization that the best way to conserve wild nature would almost certainly be to keep large areas of high-yielding agriculture completely separate from large areas of land completely committed to biodiversity conservation. This is known as land-sparing, in contrast to the alternative strategy of doing agriculture and conservation in more or less the same spatial area - land-sharing.

Professor Andrew Balmford describes his research on land sharing vs land sparing for biodiversity conservation.
